From Amsterdam,Funkie originally formed at high school as a group called Funky FIVE.After playing several local gigs the group disbanded in 1999 although still kept in touch with each other.On a social night out, the girls met producer Leo Styles at a hamburger stall and struck up a friendship. Leo helped secure Funkie a record deal with V2 2001 and was brought in to produce the first album.
Their debut album was entitled 'Amsterdamn'd" which included the dancer 'Tonight',a huge club record through 2001 although not a hit in the Holland.
The group were dropped from V2's roster, but remained active in the industry touring overseas and continuing to work on new material.
The new material is now on IUMA.Hopefully the group will get a new deal and go on to prove the other labels wrong.
